Located in the most western part of Africa, Senegal is bordered by Guinea-Bissau, Mali, and Mauritania and surrounds its much smaller Anglophone neighbour, Gambia. Senegal is among Africa’s most stable countries, with three major peaceful political transitions since independence in 1960. Senegal has so far been spared regional security shocks, but activism by terrorist groups in neighbouring countries and cross-border traffic are factors that risk fuelling instability. Senegal’s key development challenge is to mitigate the socio-economic impact of COVID-19 while enabling sustainable and inclusive long-term growth (World Bank, 2020)
